Hillary Clinton Sticks with Facebook Twitter and YouTube

Hillary_2016_Presidential_RaceOkay, the big 2016 presidential announcement is now officially in the books. Hillary Clinton is running for President in 2016. When the announcement took place, her staff posted a two-minute video to introduce her campaign and posted it on social media for the world to absorb it. A+ for effort and attention grabbing. After watching the video, people who are interested in learning more about Mrs. Clinton went to her website at www.hillaryclinton.com. Her website asks for your email address and zip code to join her on her journey. If you wanted to follow her through social media you probably also noticed the Facebook, Twitter and YouTube icons to the middle right of her website’s homepage. It looks like she’s sticking with the top three social media avenues and did not include: Pinterest, Google+ or Instagram. Does that mean that the other social media networks are not big enough or good enough to include in a presidential campaign? What about LinkedIn where millions of  U.S. business people congregate on a daily basis? Maybe there will be something included on these other social networks in the future, but for now she’s sticking with the big ones.

 

Do you think Hillary and other Presidential candidates should be promoting their campaigns on other social media networks as well? What do you think?

When Google+ Splits into Photos and Streams

googleplus-buttonWhen Google decides to change one of their brands, everyone in social media needs to be on alert. For example, Sundar Pichai, who is the senior VP of products at Google, told Forbes that plans are in place to split up the Google+ brand into two difference services. The two are said to be Photos and Streams. The Photos portion is probably going to be more like Instagram and the Streams will most likely be social media feeds and posts that you can send for Facebook, Twitter, etc.

The company has not made an official announcement yet, but when they do, it will be big news.

What are your thought on the current state of Google+?
